Cubs.com is reporting that the sale of the Cubs is nearing completion. Because the Tribune is in Bankruptcy court, a court must be involved to approve the transaction to make sure the creditors are taken care of. Major League Baseball also needs to approve Ricketts. Kenney said MLB Commissioner Bud Selig has assured him they will do whatever necessary to get the sale completed. There is no time table set according to Kenney.
An Opening Days sale is unlikely, unless everything falls into place perfectly.
